This is a great signing by the Houston Rockets.

But while the Kings did, in fact, buyout Johnson on Saturday, the 36-year-old elected to sign with the Houston Rockets, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania also reported the same information. Reports have the Rockets signing bought out free agents Brandon Wright and Joe Johnson once both clear waivers.

The Sacramento Kings announced today that the team has waived guard/forward Joe Johnson. But Houston has to get there first, and Johnson's isolation scoring could make the difference in a game against a team like the Spurs (who eliminated the Rockets last season). In his rookie season, Boston traded Johnson to the Suns.

In 32 games with the Jazz this season, Johnson averaged 7.3 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 1.4 assists while shooting 42 percent from the field, 27.4 percent from beyond the arc, and 83.3 percent from the three-throw line. In Phoenix, Johnson would play beside Steve Nash and Amar'e Stoudemire as Mike D'Antoni coached one of the most high-powered offenses of that generation. It's tough to say without getting him into this environment, and it's a reasonable, low-priced gamble for Houston.
